Depicted here in this 2007 photograph, was a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) microbiologist, and Special Pathogens Branch (SPB) staff member, as he was in the process of counting viral plaques within fixed monolayers of cells, which had been set atop a light box. While inside the organization’s Biosafety Level-4 (BSL-4) laboratory, this activity was taking place, thereby, enabling the laboratorian to titrate a viral stock. He was outfitted in an orange, air-tight, self-contained, positively-pressurized suit, which kept him free of possible contamination. See PHIL 10725 for another view of this activity.
